6 Vitamins To Help Improve Blood Circulation in the Legs

Proper blood circulation influences many aspects of our health. Our blood needs to circulate well to deliver oxygen throughout the different parts of our body. Poor circulation can be a harbinger of severe health issues, so improving the circulation of blood flow is a critical aspect of health.

One area where people struggle most with circulation issues is in the legs. With more time required sitting for our jobs, it becomes increasingly harder to find the time to exercise and perform the activities that keep our hearts healthy and our blood pumping and circulating the way it should. That’s why providing all the crucial vitamins your body requires can make a massive difference in efficient and healthy blood flow. Below, we have compiled a list of 6 vitamins for proper circulation and blood health.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K, otherwise known as potassium, is a vital nutrient that is found in many brightly colored fruits, most notably bananas.

Among its many uses, potassium is most well-known for promoting healthy muscles and preventing muscle cramps and irritation.

In terms of circulation and vein health, potassium can help strengthen arteries and veins and prevent bulging, making blood flow more smoothly and repairing damage.

Potassium is readily available in many different supplements because of its many potential benefits for the body.

vitamin b3 niacin


Niacin, or vitamin B3 is another critical nutrient that plays two key roles in supporting circulation.

First, it helps regulate bad cholesterol, which can restrict blood flow and lead to heart problems if too much of it builds up. Secondly, it helps the blood vessels to dilate or open, allowing more blood to pass through and improving circulation. Supplementation is not generally necessary because B3 is plentiful in many plant and animal-based foods.

However it can be taken as part of a B complex supplement if needed or when recommended by your doctor.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a commonly found vitamin known for improving the elasticity and look of skin and several other benefits.

Vitamin E helps improve blood flow and circulation to keep blood cells and platelets from sticking together, which can lower the chance of a clot or blockage, leading to healthier veins and a decreased risk of heart damage or stroke.

Vitamin E is plentiful in most diets, but those with a digestive disorder may find themselves with a deficiency.

IV supplementation is the best way to correct this problem since oral supplements are less likely to deliver the nutrients a person needs.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is yet another complex B vitamin everyone needs to remain healthy. B6 helps combat free radicals, which cause the hardening of veins and arteries. B6 is found naturally in food sources like tuna and other fatty fish or via supplements. 

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is essential in the repairing and production of new DNA. B12 also helps regulate homocysteine, a substance that can cause blood clots. Vitamin B12 is plentiful due to numerous dietary sources, though some people with absorption disorders may need supplements to prevent a deficiency. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is best known for how it helps boost our immune system and fight off disease. However, it is critical for healthy blood flow and circulation 1. Vitamin C is plentiful in citrus fruits, and oranges are particularly rich in this vitamin.

Last Words

Vein health, heart health, blood flow, and oxygenation of the blood cells can be impacted by many factors. The six critical vitamins listed here are vital in sustaining blood flow and vascular and heart health. Consult your doctor about finding the necessary supplements and whether oral or IV supplementation is right for you.
